Fanshawe to launch IgniteHER tech training program for women

Fanshawe College has announced the launch of a new technology-related training program for women and non-binary individuals called IgniteHER. The six-week program, offered in partnership with the Gender Equity Coalition of Ontario, will provide women with training in technology and digital skills, mental health support, advice, and tech sector employment opportunities. It is offered at no cost to students, and will provide women with a path to start a career in the tech sector. “[W]e’re really wanting to give women the opportunity to make that transition on their own time, and in sort of their own way,” said Fanshawe director of strategic initiatives and business development Candace Miller. “We recognize that they may need some support beyond just technical skills.” Global News| CBC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
